Other Faculty Opportunities Abroad

Faculty Research and Collaboration Abroad

Although there are not any formal faculty exchange programs, SJSU faculty can make contact with any partner institution in the SJSU Exchange Programs to explore various possibilities for collaboration. Some opportunities include joint research, teaching while on sabbatical and guest lecturing. Please contact the Study Abroad and Away department to learn about collaborating with our partner universities.

CSU International Programs Resident Director Opportunity

Each year California State University International Programs (CSU IP) recruits faculty to serve as Resident Directors (RDs) for a number of its study abroad programs. These positions represent one of the best chances within the CSU to work and live for an academic year in the following countries: France, Italy and Spain. Please visit the CSU IP website to learn more about the RD opportunities and to apply. 

CSU International Faculty Seminars

SJSU faculty are also invited to apply to participate in the annual CSU IP-sponsored International Faculty Seminars. The next seminar will take place in Germany in 2020 (details below).

While seemingly quite different, Germany and California are united in a number of areas. These include our pursuit of a sustainable future, our commitment to diversity and economic parity for our citizens, and our support of traditional and emerging forms of tourism, arts and media.  Participants will learn more about CSU International Programs and the experiences of students who participate in it, while interacting with colleagues from German university partners about the seminar themes.

This conference will focus on interdisciplinary dialogues. To frame the discussions, the seminar will be structured along four tracks encompassing a wide range of disciplines. All sessions will include presenters from both Baden-Württemberg and California State Universities.


  • Sustainable Cities and Climate Change
  • Transnational Cooperation and Emerging Political Realities
  • The Global Market Place: Technology and Digitalization
  • Germany Today: Language, Multiculturism, and Identity
  • Innovation and Illusion in Media and the Arts

It will be hosted in cooperation with the University of Tübingen, the state of Baden-Württemberg and the CSU IP office in Germany.
